A conundrum that mathematicians couldn’t resolve.

Tens of thousands of social media users have been unable to agree on the right response for three years now:.

There seems to be a point of contention. Finding the fruit’s numerical values, which is a very easy process to do, will reveal the solution.

30 apples are the same as 3.

a conundrum that mathematicians couldn’t resolve.

As a result, two bunches of bananas are equal to eight, while one bunch is equal to four:.

a conundrum that mathematicians couldn’t resolve.

Further. Take 2 coconut halves out of 4 (from a bunch of bananas), giving you 2. It is obvious that two coconut halves equal two, and one coconut half equals one.

Mathematicians couldn’t agree on a solution to the problem.

Thus, multiply 1, 10, and 4 (or half a coconut, an apple, and a lot of bananas) to get 15. What is a trap, exactly?

a conundrum that mathematicians were unable to resolve.

Users who were paying attention noticed that the bouquet of bananas in the equation’s final line contained only three, not four, bananas. So, instead of 15, the answer is 14.

Mathematicians then chimed in, claiming that the coconut’s two halves are distinct.

As it turns out, there isn’t a clear solution to this riddle.

However, mathematicians inevitably exaggerate when talking about coconut.

This is how the situation with bananas plays out: we calculate the numerical cost of a bouquet of three bananas. 4 bananas is the same as 4. Therefore, three bananas are equal to 1, and one banana is equal to 1.

Add together a half-coconut (1), an apple (10) and a bunch of three bananas (3) to get 14. This is most likely the right response.
